    Hi all,

    Is there a way to start Windows Mail minimized to the system tray? If so,
    how would I do it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Alice

  2. You do this the same way you would do this under Windows XP.

    Right click "start"

    Go to Open All Users

    Click on Programs

    Right click on Windows Mail

    Copy

    Open the Startup folder

    Right click | paste

    Go to the properties of Windows Mail in the startup folder

    Set the startup option at "minimize"

    Apply and close the popup window

    Close everything down and restart your computer to test.

    It works for me!

    I think she meant mimimise to the system tray, like Outlook can do.

    With OE I used to use this:

    It could start OE on startup and keep it in the system tray while minimised.

  5. Yes. Make a shortcut to Windows Mail in your Startup folder, set "run:
    minimized" in it's properties, then install OE-PowerTool 3.15 and check
    appropriate option.
